With seemingly countless ways to buy and sell clothes for kids these days, it’s hard to wade through which ones are worth your time and which ones are duds. We’ve put on our savviest wading boots and done the work for you on this one — introducing the TotSpot app, the sassiest new way to handle all of your kids’ clothes shopping.
Using a mom-to-mom platform via an app you can download to your phone for free, TotSpot allows you to buy and sell gently used — and often brand new — clothes, shoes, accessories, outerwear and gear for kids of all ages. What makes it unique is the ease of its design — in less than a minute, you can be on the TotSpot app browsing for the exact clothes your kids need, or taking and uploading pictures to sell the items they’ve grown out of.
Give TotSpot a try! We’ll walk you through every little step along the way!
Step 1: Create a profile
Once you’ve downloaded the TotSpot app on your phone choose to create your account using your email address or your Facebook profile, then simply pick your username and password to get started in TotSpot. It’s as simple as that. You can also upload a picture to use as your profile. Before you start shopping, take a moment to click over to the “Me” tab and input your information under “Payment Method” and “Shipping Address” to make your sales and purchases go even quicker!
Step 2: Add your kids
This is one of our favorite features in the TotSpot app — creating the “Tot Profile” for each of our kids. Go to “Me” then to “Tots Profile” to get started. You can enter a new profile for each of your children, which includes their name, gender, age, clothes size and shoe size. Click back over to the “Shop” screen and you’ll see each of their profiles along the top, where TotSpot has already curated items to buy, based on their information. Hello, major time and sanity saver!
Step 3: Browse and buy
When you find something you can’t live without, buying is as easy as clicking the “Buy Now” button. It will use the credit card you’ve previously registered in your profile to complete your sale, or you can enter it on the spot. Shipping costs are predetermined, based on the price of the item you’re buying and TotSpot always guarantees every purchase on the app, which means that you always feel safe buying from the other moms.
Step 4: Save by selling
If you’ve sold clothes online before, you know that it can be more trouble than it’s worth. The selling portion of the TotSpot app makes it easier than putting your 2-year-old down for a morning nap. Click on the “Sell” tab, take a picture of the item you want to sell, and fill out the categories to create your listing. When your item sells, you are notified via the TotSpot “Alert” system (it connects back to your email, as well) and you can get it in the mail to your buyer. TotSpot credits your account in the app, which you can use to purchase other items, or cash out into your linked bank account.
